the process will end. sometime in 2014. >> only recently, taliban fighters launched an attack on the prestigious inter- continental hotel in kabul. responsibility for security in the capital had already been transferred to afghans, but neither police nor the army was able to defeat the attackers. helicopters called in to help end the siege after five hours. since the incident, the hotel has become a symbol of evidence in the face of terrorism and is the worst moment for the beginning troop withdrawal from afghanistan. >> the u.s. military and its allies started bombing afghanistan within weeks of the 911 attacks and brought down the taliban regime with air strikes and a massive ground assault within months. the international security assistance force was set up to stabilize the country after the fall of the taliban. we now take a look back at the afghan mission in the past decade. >> their mission was to draw out the taliban and deny al qaeda the most important base. planned to last just a few weeks, the war in afghanistan still goes on a decade later. president george bush ga

's speculation of everybody from the cia to drug lords to the taliban. >> absolutely. that speculation is still runs. it's not clear whether his absence will have that big of a stabilizing effect. from the united states point of view karzai's brother caused a lot of problems, he was always playing a double game, but he managed a lot of relationships. he had the charisma to maintain that network. for karzai. that was crucial. you can see how karzai really needed a counterbalance to the taliban when it came to now we have to see who can fill that void try to manage those relationship nots to mention the lucrative narcotics routes to try to maintain the piece while u.s. forces are there. more importantly, though, the real focus we have is the u.s./pakistani negotiation and whether pakistan can come through in developing some sort of accommodate with the taliban that would allow the u.s. to disengage. >> dave, go ahead. >> what is the impact of the united states drawing down in afghanistan? i'm talking about police actions and espionage, which we can pursue anyway. what is the impact of us drawing

with the taliban about ceasefires and their entry in the government. in other words, he was a practical deal maker. now, he was famous in the west or notorious for the corruption that surrounded him. but corruption surrounded all of the billions of dollars in american and western military aid and spending being brought into afghanistan. everyone in afghanistan was corrupt. amid karzai was an ally and effective deal maker. a journalist recalls he was a wheeler dealer in the classic afghan mode. but if tefs a rogue, he was a loveable rogue who charmed you, one way of doing political business in afghanistan. karzai's death reminds us it is the kind of political business he excelled at that we need urgently. that is what will ultimately bring stability to afghanistan, whether the united states has a hundred thousand troops or 50,000, whether it withdraws as a slow or rapid pace. at some point the afghan government will have to make deals with those who wooeled power on the ground. it likely will never work in a country with afghanistan's geography, ethnicity and history. what will work is a political
no other geostrategic options, they went back to the taliban and we don't want to send them back to the policy approach, and if we do that they would cut off our own access logistics in the country, but if you keep rewarding them with the business as usual approach, you not signaled to them how seriously you take their lack of cooperation in the operations. and moreover, the $800 million is not the money we can spend. it is not a punishment, but the new reality they have created. it is the just right approach, and doesn't mean it can work, but i can't think of a better policy operation by the united states. >> what would you be looking for pakistan to do to reassure america that the money can be redispersed? >> well, they have kicked out a lot of our agents and refused to act on specific tips that we have given them about the locations of hideouts or caches, weapons caches for the haqqani networks or other insurgents operating inside of afghanistan or pakistani sanctuaries and i want to see them go after the haqqani network and the broader group in north waziristan and other area
